Last year I shared Mike’s and my busy Labour Day weekend with you and in it I showed you a picture of the duvet cover I made for our bed. While I am crazy proud of it, I have to admit it was crazy simple to make. If you want to make one too (it is so hard to find ones that I like) this is all you have to do. Get a sewing machine, some pins and two flat sheets (for a queen duvet I used double sheets). Yeah, there really aren’t many materials that you need.
What do we do now? Well, but the nice sides of the sheets together and pin all the sides, if you have a pattern you can try to match them, I got around this by using one side patterned and the other plain. Allow cats to “help.”
Next step? Sew three of the sides shut, leaving the bottom. I then did a little bit of sewing on the sides of the bottom, about 6 cm from each end. Then to make the new cover stay on my duvet better (I hate how they always slide apart), I attached little scraps to the top inside corners and added a fabric loop to the top corners of my duvet.
That’s it! It’s just that easy. I really don’t know much about sewing and even I managed to crank one out in about 1 hour and the only reason it took that long was because I three kitty “helpers.”
Good luck if you decide to give making a duvet a go 🙂
